campaign schedule tomorrow. but mr. romney did not want to wait for that. he started his campaign events today. i'm sorry, are you stuck doing something else? i'll take advantage of that? i'll get back on the campaign trail, i'm heading to florida. apparently you're otherwise occupied. well, i'm not. it's remarkable. it is a remarkable decision to restart his campaign today. but honestly, it is also remarkable that mr. romney never really stopped campaigning in the first place. we reported yesterday on this event that mr. romney held in dayton, ohio, yesterday afternoon. it was the event that had previously been billed as a victory rally in dayton. with the president off the campaign trail entirely to deal with the crisis, the romney campaign realized it would be coarse to keep campaigning. the campaign's communications director put out a statement on monday saying that the romney campaign was going to be canceling all campaign events, "out of sensitivity to the millions of americans in the path of hurricane sandy." see, they realized like they had to seem like they were being sensitive
to american spring wire, mr. romney hammered away at president obama for not being tough on china. not the way that he mitt romney would be tough on china. but the company mr. romney chose for his backdrop that day, the company that he chose to implicitly help make that case so happened to be a poster child for success by president obama in getting tough on china. in 2009 in the first months of president obama's presidency, american spring wire joined with two other makers to ask for help. china was unfairly dumping steel wire in the united states market at artificial low prices. they asked for help. the commerce department said they would investigate and the commerce department did move to protect american spring wire. they cracked down on china for dumping their underpriced product. thus the company was benefitted. they got the help they wanted. a company that was then used as a backdrop for mitt romney saying president obama had not been tough on china. today mr. romney gave a major address on economic policy. this is part of his closing argument for the presidency. he delivered the speech
. >> and further to this issue of trust, the president took aim at mr. romney for misleading voters with egregious and desperate claims that chrysler is moving jeep production to china. >> it's not true. everybody knows it's not true. the car companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. you don't scare hard-working americans just to scare up some votes. that's not what being president is all about. >> no, it isn't what being president is all about, but it is what the romney campaign is all about, as he demonstrated today in wisconsin trading rolled up sleeves for his salesman's suit and warning voters that a vote for the president could mean another recession, among other horrors. >> the same path we're on means $20 trillion in debt in four years. it means crippling unemployment continues. it means stagnant take-home pay, depressed home values, and a devastated military, and unless we change course, we may well be looking at another recession. >> yes, i guess someone told mr. romney it's the day of the dead. all he's missing there are a few skeletons as stage props. hang on, wha
, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> that didn't work, so reporters went outside and asked him again. >> reporter: governor, are you going to eliminate fema? >> reporter: governor, you haven't said what you would do with fema. why won't you answer any questions on it. >> no response. he has no answers. maybe that's why the guy who gave the keynote address at this convention is praising his opponent. >> the president has been great. the president has been all over this. the president has been outstanding. i appreciate that type of leadership. >> appreciating the president's leadership in this crisis is obviously nonpartisan
that was the lower end of the bound. i said it was likely that it was $115 billion today mr. romney's campaign issued a statement saying, that was accurate. now you saw that on the front page of "the washington post." no. i report for the number one english-language newspaper, the guardian, greatest last story about romney billionaires covered the entire front page of the newspaper and by last story about mr. romney and his billionaires was at the top of the nightly news for bbc television where i'm an investigative reporter. now i know that in case you don't know what investigative reporting is, it's not done here because it's a violation of the patriot act three which is why you haven't seen me on any of the local, the peacock or the foxhole or the eyewall, or even "msnbc" but some of you got that. mr. romney and his money. that is all right as governor romney himself would say. in america we like to celebrate success, and his success is nothing compared to his partners. three billionaires who operate hedge funds, partnered with romney on a takedown of the treasury in the auto bailout. three guys e
. did you detect, perhaps, a subtle dig on mr. romney who spent today going against the guidelines established by the red cross and holding a campaign rally in ohio that was dressed up like a charity drive collecting food and other supplies when the red cross expressly asked people not to do that? >> well, what i think the president was doing was being commander in chief, and he continues to distinguish himself as someone who is focused on the needs of everyday americans, and this is more important to him even than the presidency. that's why he's going to be traveling to the site personally. that's why he had multiple personal conversations with the governor of new jersey. i think that this is yet another moment where you see the clear, striking difference between a president who has a heart for the american people and someone who simply wants to be president of the united states. >> indeed. professor peterson? >> i would agree. i mean, it's xration thcompassi shows through in times like these. it's humanity that shows through in times like these and it just seems clear that the pr
understands business and i do and that's why i'll be able to -- >> i'm not sure that mr. romney realizes that this week everyone's been reminded that americans need much in a president than the ability to make money. moments ago, another man noted for his business expertise, now leader of the nation's largest city, independent mayor mike bloomberg, has just endorsed president obama for four more years. let's get right to our panel. with us from washington, msnbc political analyst david corn, author of "47 percent." and joy reid managing editor of thegrio.com. of who always brings 100%. >> borrowing the words of calvin coolidge who said the business of america is business. the most respected businessman turned politician mike bloomberg has just endorsed the president. what do you make of that move? >> what was interesting was one of the reasons mayor bloomberg cited, which was climate change. looking at the devastating impact of the storm sandy -- >> due mean that nonsensical, mumbo jumbo, nonsense that isn't believable. >> we will remember when mitt romney joked, actually joked, about ri
and vice president biden makes two campaign stops in florida. mr. romney will also be in florida as he makes three stops. paul ryan will spend the day campaigning in his home state of wisconsin. let's get back to sandy, because two of the three major airports serving the new york area, kennedy and newark, they'll start to reopen with limited service later this morning, but the super storm created a worldwide ripple effect. many are still stranded overseas. so we want to check in with michelle kosinski from london. good morning. >> reporter: right, it does have that sort of snowballing effect that we see with any major travel destruction around the world, but of course this is a big one with so many airports closed for more than one day now. one expert was estimating that more than 50,000 travelers have been affected just between new york and london. sounds like a big number for a short period of time, but it's really not when you consider that about 7,000 people on average per day traveled just between jfk and heathrow. and even thorng, we're still seeing dozens upon dozens of cancella
cleared. mr. romney's running mate paul ryan held one event in florida before cutting the day short and heading to his home in wisconsin. in terms of hurricane sandy's direct effect on next week's election, chuck todd reports tonight that the fema director craig foou gait has told states if they incur extra costs because of the storm, if they have to move polling places or bring in generators for power, should sandy cause elections officials any expensive changes, states and cities will be reimbursed for those costs by the federal disaster relief, ev if one doesn't believe in that sort of thing. this is not a time for ideology. let's bring in michelle franzen in battery park in lower manhattan. everybody has been keeping an eye on the storm surge and wondering how high the water is going to rise. and what threat it's going to impose. what can you tell us about the conditions and how they are changing now? >> reporter: they have certainly deteriorat deteriorat deteriorated. we have a photo to show you. there's some water that's been reported gushing into the brooklyn battery tunnel.
, they mentioned mitt romney's name and he said don't boo, vote, voting is the best way to get revenge. and mr. romney has been pounding the president ever since for that, watch. >> yesterday the president something, you may have heard by now that i think surprised a lot of people, speaking to an audience he said voting is the best revenge, he told the supporters, voting for revenge, vote for revenge? let me tell you what i'd like to tell you, vote for love of country. (cheers). and that dove tails into what is romney's affirmative positive message, the type of agenda he'll bring to the country. five points to expand, expanded education, ways to improve trade, crackdown on china, cut taxes and balance the budget and small business and makes the argument he has a record of that achievement mr. romney didn't match being in office-- mr. obama can't match being in the office virtually four years and he made the remarks in new hampshire and in ohio and by the estimates, 30,000 people in the crowd, by other estimates 20,000. and he'll come back to iowa to sleep and three hours in the sack another th
that these families will need. >> reporter: and with presidential politics hanging in the balance, one of mr. romney's top supporters, chris christie had nothing but praise for the federal government. >> the president has been outstanding in this, so the folks at fema have been excellent. >> reporter: later christie made it clear he isn't concerned about the storm's effect on election day. >> i don't care about election day. it doesn't matter a lick to me. let the politicians who are on the ballot worry about election day. it's not my problem, i'm not dealing with it at the moment. >> reporter: local officials in his state and others are worried. in new york's nassau county, loss of power may force votes to be counted by hand, delaying the results. new jersey's ocean county is considering relocating polling places. and west virginia may deploy generators to keep lights on. back in ohio, the campaigns have been ignoring the storm, instead bickering over this new romney ad. >> who will do more for the auto industry? not barack obama? obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. and sold chrysler to ita
with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4 million people out of power. i have devastation on the shore, floods in the northern part of my state. if you think i give a damn about presidential politics, then you don't know me. >> this storm is a wakeup call to those conservatives who want to leave disaster relief up to the states. turn it over to them. to those who want to privatize everything. the state of new jersey is overwhelmed. they don't have enough resources. the state's resources aren't enough to help those without power, to help those flooded out of their home. you need a total effort across the country in a crisis like this. that's why there is a federal government. federal and local governments working together is the successful formula for the state of new jersey. it's going to take time. but to turn it over to the states and say you're
of those wing nuts would say. mara little says should we follow the advice of mr. romney and mr. paul and do away with big government and defund and do away with fema? better yet can we just dump them in the middle of new york city and advise them to let the state alone, take care of things. if sandy doesn't illustrate their poor thinking, nothing will. exactly. [ ♪ theme ♪ ] [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> bill: good morning everybody. great to see you this morning on this tuesday october 30. sandy has struck and moved on and we survived. meanwhile, on the campaign trail, it is the biggest whopper of the campaign so far. after telling the auto industry to go belly up and opposing any federal relief, mitt romney is now claiming that he -- not president obama saved g.m. and chrysler. can you believe it? mitt romney ought to burn in hell for that lie. he keeps telling it. we'll tell you why that's wrong and a whole lot more here plus bring you all of the latest on the impact of hurricane sandy. right here on the "full court
will read a bit of it. when he was asked about fema, mr. romney said absolutely every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the state, that's the right direction. you can go further and send it back to the private sector. that's better. he talks about taking fema and divesting it into the states. yet, this week, i think that statement is many could go back to haunt him. is this more than anything a teachable moment for mitt romney? >> storms bring the best and the worst out in america. they both seem to show up during a natural disaster. a natural disaster is one that crosses a couple of states. i lived through hurricane hugo in 1989 and watched the politics of a hurricane. we were out of power. my business was down. for politicians, they have to be very careful. it can make or break a political career. this is where the american public expect the government to step up, not just for a couple of days or a couple of sound bites. right now, it is going to be the sound bites that will get us to this election. president obama has show
are contorsoinists. >> governor romney is down by five points in ohio, according to the latest polls. for mr. romney, desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn't matter how much the truth suffers. joining me now is pulitzer prize connie schultz. she writes today, why romly will lose ohio. hint, hint. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." he's writing that romney goes off road with the truth. thanks for being here tonight. connie, let me start with you. you were born and raised in ohio with ties to the auto industry. >> yes. >> how are ohioans responding to this false attack by romney and ryan? >> that's what is interesting to me. i come from these people. i come from utility workers and auto plant workers and steel workers. i think romney thinks that the people that i come from are stupid. but i've been traveling all over the state. i was in three different towns today and i've been at a lot of packed halls with auto workers and people who supply the auto industry. you're talking about 800,000 jobs in auto-related jobs in ohio, which means you're talking about more th
with what susan eisenhower just asked. do you, does anyone have a grip on who mitt romney is? really? the moderate pro choice governor from massachusetts, the guy who goo gave us the model for obama care or hangs closely with hawks, joins with religious right. is he dr. jekyll or mr. hyde, or is he both or neither? jack kennedy once said he felt sorry for his rival richard nixon because he doesn't know who he is and each stop he has to decide which nixon he is at the moment. worse case? do you think this guy mr. romney will suddenly have the force of will to betray the right? have you seen a single case when romney's broken free from the mob that's brought him this far, a single sister soldier when he says of the trumps, sununu

against you mr. romney. are you a turnaround expert and you are saying that these turnarounds were garbage so that is their offense. they've been saying it. >> cenk: i know. if one side has the weapon of just truth and the other of truth saying the economy is sluggish et cetera and a whole arsenal of lies, uneven playing field. my point michael is if i were the democrats, i would charge at the media so much harder and say you're not doing your job! you're being completely and utterly unfair to us, to progressives, to liberalal you're n nligent.. you' u' incompetent! you should show the facts on a daily basis. if you don't do that, you're biased. they're lying at it whereas we would be telling the truth. >> you're right. there's nothing you've said that wasn't true but you also have to say, what i said already which is the democrats do play their version of offense. it is just very different and right now, you're looking at a desperate campaign. they're coming back withing this radio ad about welfare. the president ob

to mr. romney. well, a gm spokesman responded to this saying, that is absolutely bereft of any fundamental understanding of the global automotive industry. all global manufacturers, whether general motors, ford, chrysler, or vw, build historically in the markets in which we sell. steve rattner, last, just to nail this down, it seems to me, the reality is, beyond all the nonsense and the ads put out by romney to get votes, is that we build jeeps in this country for people to buy them in this country, as i have done, and we build jeeps in china for chinese people to buy, and that's the way it's been, it's the way it will be, according to all future plans. >> yes. and i think both you and bill and what you have just read from the gm spokesman has made that very clear. cars are being made close to people who buy them. now, we do export jeeps at the moment, because it is such an iconic brand worldwide. and jeep wranglers will only be made in toledo for the foreseeable future. and any jeep wranglers that are bought around the world, and as i said, it is an iconic brand, will be expor
." cleveland plain dealer's er89 says "flailing in ohio romney rolls out jeep ploy." say wau want about mr. romney's overall relationship with the truth throughout this campaign. say he's prone to gaffes or misstatements, call them fibs, call them lies. now that he is finishing his campaign in ohio with a lie about ohio that ohio knows is a lie, you can just call this one a mistake. now it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." have a great night. >>> the good news for mitt romney tonight is the massive storm has made everyone forget about his secret tax returns. the bad news for mitt romney is the massive storm has made everyone forget about mitt romney. >> on the ground in the middle of the devastation, president obama will tour new jersey. >> the october surprise, bipartisanship. >> governor chris christie -- >> i cannot thank the president enough. >> -- and president obama -- >> we will not quit until this is done. >> together surveying the damage. >> a big storm requires some big government. >> the federal government -- >> it seems like common sense. >> -- will not quit u
resource, the candidate's time in a serious way to win pennsylvania. mr. romney's appearance here on sunday could be a crafty political move to seriously undercut president obama, or could be a sign of desperation. either way is visit represents the biggest jolt yet in a state that has been recently largely ignored. in recent days, polls showing -obama's narrowing said. again, this morning we are talking about the non- battleground states. we will go to california, on our line for republicans, helen, you are on. caller: good morning. i am a first-time caller. please do not cut me off. host: go ahead. caller: i will be so glad when this election is over. i was raised a republican. my whole entire life, never voted anything but republican. but i tell you what, anyone -- i switched this year, i was born to go independent, but i am going to go for barack obama. anyone that will vote for mitt romney has to be a 100% raist, or have a severe -- a 100% racist or have a severe mental problem. host: are you glad you are not subject to all of the presidential ads and mailings coming and to folks in oh
